Summer frocks

I did some dress-making this weekend. I finished one dress using Westminster fabric called Blossoms and Sparrows (Misaki Collection). I used the New Look pattern 6910 again, except this time I made it with a higher neckline and did not add a belt. 

I also almost finished another sun dress, using New Look pattern no. 6457 (Dress A), using 2.5 yards of Moda American Jane School Days fabric called Recess.

I finally have my own sewing room in our house; it's a real blessing! At last I can pack out my my whole stash and all my quilting books and and get inspired while working.

Beautiful dresses, both of them. I hope that summer lasts for a little while longer, so you can wear them! Otherwise there's always next year ;). Isn't it so much better to have a sewing room? I can't imagine going back to sewing somewhere in the house and always have to put everything away again in the evening. You get so much more done if you can just leave everything and go and sew, even if it's only for a little while.
